So I enjoy maths.
So I came to this thread.
At first reading the first page I was a little confused by exactly what was going on... and having read the subsequent 5 pages, I'm very very confused.
Could anyone give me a hand here? What's the objective here? I have no idea where this thread came from so I lack context, and am completely baffled by reading this thread's contents. But I am interested and would like to know. Who can help?
